Double Tap (Code-11, KPD SWAT #2)

Publication Date: June 4th, 2015

Genre: M/F, Romantic Suspense

Synopsis:

Nico met the love of his life when he was seventeen.

Immediately, he realizes that the gap in their ages is too significant to make a move on her until she’s legal in the eyes of the law. So he joins the United States Navy, killing time until he can come home to her again.

But a tragedy strikes while Georgia is alone and vulnerable, and with no other recourse, Georgia leaves, disappearing without a trace.

After months of searching, he finds her, but quickly realizes that she needs the time to herself to work out her problems on her own.

So he leaves her be, knowing that if she ever felt anything for him, she’d come back home to him.

But it takes her years to return, and in those years, Nico changes, too.

He’s seen too much. Done too much. Lost too much.

He lives his life as a SWAT officer for KPD, goes through the motions of everyday life, but only as half a man. And not even the good half. The US military saw to that.

When the two finally come back together, one question remains. Will she love him as the man he is now, or leave him because he’s not the same man he used to be?

Excerpt:

I spotted her the moment I topped the hill.

She was wearing jeans.  Skin tight jeans that made my heart skip a beat.

She looked exactly like I remembered her.

Long legs that went on forever, small dainty hands.  She was around five eight, and had a killer ass.  Her hair was the only thing different.

It used to be long and brown, down to her waist.

It was the same beautiful brown color on top, yet now there was a barrage of colors added to the layer underneath the top brown layer.  It was shorter, as well.  Short.  As in to her shoulders, short.

In fact, it really did it for me.

I made sure to scruff my boots on the gravel to let her know I was behind her, and she froze, turning slowly.

Her face was exactly like I remembered it.

A smattering of freckles still covered her nose and cheeks, and her beautiful lips were still round and full.

And God, her eyes were to die for.

Crystal fucking blue.

She was gorgeous.

Those gorgeous baby blues widened when she saw me, but it didn’t take her long and she was running.

I widened my stance and caught her as she launched herself into my arms.

She was my world eight years ago, and now, it felt exactly the same.  I wanted her so bad it hurt.

Wrapping my arms around her, I buried my nose into the crease of her neck.

“Nicolas,” she breathed into my neck.

She smelled like the sun, and felt perfect in my arms.  Like she was always meant to be there.

Eight years ago, I’d made the first move.  Letting her know that I was interested.

I’d waited too long, though.

I should’ve done it earlier, but I was worried about propriety.

I worried that she’d been too young, that I should wait until she was graduated.

Maybe if I’d made my move earlier, she’d have stayed.

But I didn’t, and she’d disappeared.

Then I’d gotten deployed, and we’d lived on the occasional letter to keep in touch.

My favorite letter, the one that’d saved me.  The one that was the first thing I’d read after the death of nearly my whole unit, I still carried with me to this day.

It was nothing special.  Just a short one from Georgia telling me she’d taught a boy, in a park she ran at, how to do a sliding tackle.  But it’d been the words at the end of the letter that had pulled me out of whatever zone I’d been in.

Three simple words:  I need you.

The letters had gotten me through a lot of years and a lot of scary days.

She probably didn’t realize it, but she saved my life.

“Georgia.” My roughened voice croaked.  “I’ve missed the hell out of you.”

Center Mass (Code-11, KDP SWAT #1)

Genre: M/F, Romantic Suspense

Synopsis:

Luke Roberts came to the small lazy town of Kilgore, Texas with one thing on his mind: Forgetting. He wanted to forget why he left. Forget those emerald green eyes that haunted his dreams. And forget how it felt to have his heart ripped out of his chest by a woman who didn’t like the fact that he had a child. It was something he’d been doing a damn fine job of doing, too. Until Reese smashed through every one of his defenses, and made him feel again.

Reese Doherty was just trying to do the best for her little girl. So she moved to the little boomtown nearly an hour from where she grew up to be the school nurse for Kilgore’s littlest people. That’s where she met him. The SWAT officer and the man that would change her life forever. The sexy man who liked to drive fast, and live life like it should be lived. He drove her crazy, and became something she could barely live without.

But Luke was a hero. A man used to risking his life to make the world a safer place. Something Reese had to decide whether she could handle or not. Preferably before her and her daughter became too attached.

Just when she’s ready to give him her whole heart, her world takes a huge hit, and everything she thought she knew wasn’t as it seemed.

Luke wasn’t a quitter, though. Damn far from it, and he’d prove to her that he’d be there when the dust settled. Whether she wanted him to be or not.

Excerpt:

She sat back in her chair, a smile on her face. “So you used her for sex?”

I shook my head. “No. That’s not what I said.”

“Oh?” She asked. “Then what did you mean?”

“It means that I was having fun. She was an amusement, one that might have turned into something more in time, but wore out her welcome when she told me she didn’t like my child,” I said coldly.

I wouldn’t have said it as coldly if I hadn’t seen Lydia stand up in the mirror above Reese’s head. Just having her anywhere near me set my skin to crawling. Just as it’d done when I’d left her.

I saw her flinch and turn around, as did Reese, who gave me a sympathetic look.

“You’ve got this twitch…right above your eye,” she said, a grin playing at the corner of her lip. “I think I really like you. I didn’t think anyone could be as mean as I could.”

“Are you done yet, or are you just going to play with that straw with your talented tongue some more?” I asked, exasperated.

She winked.

“What,” she asked, licking the straw completely before sucking it into her mouth. “Does this bother you?”

She was playing with fire.

“You know,” I said, standing slowly. “I’ve had one hell of a week. I’m running on fumes, and you’re getting really close to pushing my last button.”

She stood too, taking the half eaten milkshake with her.

“And what button’s that?” She asked over her shoulder.

I took in the view of her backside. The tight black pants that molded to her ass perfectly. Her long hair that just brushed the top of her butt… just begging for me to sink my fingers into it. A handhold I could pull while I fucked her hard from behind.

“I’m not an easy man.” I said softly behind her. “I’m rough. I have a kid. My job’s demanding and I won’t be able to devote a lot of time to you.”

She snorted. “I’m not an easy woman. I’m emotional. I have baggage. I’m loud. My kid requires a lot of my attention. And I PMS once a month.”

In one swift move, I pinned her up against the side of my cruiser.

Her body went limp, and her fingers went to my shirt, clutching it in her fists.

My mouth slammed down on hers. Weeks of sexual frustration coming out into the kiss.

She tasted like vanilla ice cream.

Soft and smooth, and oh, so sweet.

“You’re so fucking sexy,” I said against her lips. “When I get you into my bed, I won’t let you up for air for weeks.”

She grinned, pulling in the air I’d just exhaled before saying, “We have kids. You’ve got until ten A.M. Tops.”

I leaned forward. “That’s enough time…for now.”

My Review: 5/5 Stars

Center Mass was amazing!

Luke is the kind of man you would want in your corner because OMG. He was in the Marines, on the police force, he is very honorable and he’s a great father. He knows what he wants in life and he wants Reese.

Reese loves her daughter and will do anything to protect her, so when her ex comes back in the picture, she doesn’t know how she can stop him from seeing Rowan. Life had been going well for Reese. Her and Luke were dating and they were happy. Reese is also the girl next door, down to earth and can cuss with the best of them.

Now the real kicker is someone wants both Luke and Reese dead. I mean in a bad way.

Center Mass was just the right pace, not too fast and not too slow, just the way I like it. I loved how they interacted with each other and their kids. And Luke’s team, OMG. They were just awesome sauce all wrapped up in hot damn!

Center Mass doesn’t go down the route of the expected because there are a few twist that had me, like damn, it wasn’t them?

I can’t wait to read Nico’s story!

Center Mass Release Teaser

Excerpt:

The next day I found myself at the movie theater with a room full of screaming children excited to see the newest Disney movie.

I wasn’t a fan of animated movies.

I also wasn’t a fan of theaters.

But I’d do just about anything for my daughter, even sit in a theater with kids who wouldn’t shut the fuck up.

Didn’t these parents know how to tell their kids to be quiet?

Surely they wouldn’t let them do that throughout the entire movie…right?

But when thirty minutes went by and the couple in front of us continued to let their kids fight and run around the entire fucking theater, I was about out of tolerance.

I hadn’t realized that anybody could be so rude.

I’d just about made my mind up to say something when a big man, two rows in front of us, stood and walked down the aisle.

He walked calmly up the main row; I thought that he was just going to the restroom, but he stopped on the row that the parents were busy playing on their phones.

Sounds and all.

“’Scuse me,” a familiar voice rumbled.

The cop.

What was his name? Luke?

Yeah, that was it. Luke Roberts.

He had to be seeing the movie with his daughter, because why the hell else would a man like him be watching a Disney movie?

“Sir, ma’am. I’m going to have to ask you to make your children behave, or I’ll have to ask you to leave,” Luke said softly.

I wanted to stand up and applaud. Would that be rude?

Rowen didn’t even notice, being on the other side of me. She was enraptured with the fat blobby robot on the screen, not bothered in the least by the kids, nor the man.

Turning my face away from my child, I watched as the asshole father stood up, bowing up his chest.

The man was big, I’ll give him that. But he wasn’t the same caliber as Luke.

The two were like night and day.

Where Luke was fit, the man was large. Where Luke was intimidating and authoritative, the man came off as a jerk who used his size to get his way.

A particularly bright part in the movie lit the theater, showing me Luke’s amusement at the man’s show of attempted intimidation.

When the man got up and got face to face with Luke, I turned in my seat more fully to get the full effect, tossing a piece of popcorn into my mouth in excitement.

Now this was what I was talking about. I was an action kind of girl. I didn’t like movies where there was nothing exploding and no shirtless guys.

Now the scene in front of me I knew wasn’t going to escalate much past raised voices, but it was better than nothing.

“Listen here, boy. I’ll have you know that I paid for my tickets just like the rest of these folks. I want to sit here and enjoy the movie,” the man yelled.

“You want to enjoy the movie? How about you tell those,” he pointed to the kids. “To sit down.”

The man’s two fighting kids slipped in between the seat and Luke’s legs.

Then Luke lost his patience. “Sit.”

They followed direction instantly, sitting down and staring at the movie with quivering chins.

It was as if that was the first time they’d ever heard a reprimand before; although, it probably was.

The mother stood in outrage, but Luke’s glare had her quickly sitting down.

Which caused me to snicker, making Luke’s eyes turn toward me.

His glare showed me he wasn’t as amused as I was, but he winked at me, eyes flicking down to Rowen before he turned back to the man in front of him.

Who was absolutely livid.

“I’m going to call the cops on you,” the man snarled.

Luke’s lips tilted up into a slow grin. “Go on, make my day.”

Turns out that the man didn’t have to, because in the next moment the show was stopped, the lights turned on, and two cops came striding down the theater’s main aisle.

They were in uniform.

Just not the standard black uniform with yellow writing that most cops wore. These men wore black cargo-type pants, a black shirt with KPD on it in large yellow letters.

Large gun belts were strapped around their waists. They had a walkie talkie that was strapped on to the belt that had a wire connected to a hand held device that clipped to their shoulders.

Their badges, worn around their necks, were big, gold, and shiny.

The taller of the two was a red head.

Big and brawny.

I bet he could pull off a kilt very nicely. I could visualize him perfectly playing a bag pipe and his kilt floating up to reveal his nicely muscled ass.

He had a beard, as did the other man. Must be a thing, because now that I thought about it, Luke did, too.

The other man was Mexican American. He was tall, but only about six foot or so. His eyes were dark, taking in the theater in a quick efficient way that only someone that was experienced would.

I’d found that since I’d started being in the presence of my sister’s boyfriend’s motorcycle club, The Dixie Wardens, that all of those men took in a room much the same way.

Most of them had military backgrounds, and quite a few were cops. There was just a certain aura about them that fairly screamed ‘Cop!’

They passed my row, both of them looking at me before dismissing me completely, eyes on the scene in front of us.

“Well, the police are here,” Luke drawled. “What now?”

By now the man had the attention of the entire theater, instead of the back four rows, and you could tell he was losing steam.

He knew he was in the wrong.

“It’s time to go, woman. We’re getting our money back for this shit. Fucking cocksuckers,” the man growled, grabbing his wife’s arm and forcing her to stand.

The kids followed nicely, slipping out of the theater as quickly as they could manage.

“Downy, follow them to make sure they actually leave without causing any more trouble,” Luke sighed.

I blinked in surprise.

“What an asshole. He ruined my movie,” Rowen exclaimed, drawing the attention of Luke and the other officer.

My eyes closed, and my face heated. “Goddamn Tru. I’m going to kick her ass.”

I said it softly, but when I opened my eyes, I realized that both men had heard, somehow.

What, did they have super hearing as well?

Luke smiled.

Busted!

Charge to my Line (Heroes of the Dixie Warden #6)

Genre: M/F, MC Romance

Synopsis:

You’re the Charge…

Bad Boy. Screw-up. Good for nothing. Hero. Angel. These were all words Grayson ‘Torren’ Trammel had heard whispered behind his back over his lifetime. What he hadn’t heard was ‘quitter,’ and he’d be damned if some little rehab chick, with her beautiful brown hair, and hot, sassy little mouth was going to label him as such.

To My…

Tru knows Grayson’s not for her. He’s too bad. Too hot. Too demanding. Too taken.

She tells herself that almost daily as she helps Grayson get back into fighting shape after a horrific accident nearly ripped his life away from him. That had taken the life of one of the men in his MC.

Grayson is everything her father warned her about, but there’s just something about him that intrigues her. That makes her want more.

The man’s a firefighter. How bad could he be?

Line…

Apparently, he could be way worse than bad, but he could also be so very, very good. Something Tru realizes, rather quickly, when the two can no longer fight the pull that’s between them.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

I was super excited to read this book. So much so that when I got it, I stopped everything I was doing so that I could read it. From the sneak peek in Life to my Flight I was hooked. Is it bad if you have more than one book boyfriend?

Grayson was amazing. He was also kind, caring and loyal. Boy do I want a man like him. He’s a fireman for crying out loud. Hot damn.

Tru had spunk and I loved it. She is the leading lady you can relate to and she wasn’t overly dramatic or over the top.

When a series of incidents start to happen, Grayson steps up and stands by her side. I loved how their relationship unfolded and they didn’t hold anything back from each other. You don’t see that, that often. Though there was a little resistance it wasn’t enough to make want to hurt the stubborn person.

Now I really need to read the first four books. I don’t know what the heck I’m waiting for.

Life to My Flight (Heroes of the Dixie Warden #5)

Genre: M/F, MC, Romance

Synopsis:

You’re The Life

Cleo’s a Pararescueman for the U.S. Air Force.  When a PJ is called, it’s because everyone else has said no.  It’s one of the most dangerous jobs in the entire military, but also one of the most rewarding. It’s the reason he doesn’t form relationships.  He’s seen his teammates divorce one by one, and he doesn’t want to do that to a woman.  Especially one that he’s supposed to love.  However, nowhere in his grand scheme did he plan for the force that was Rue.

To My

Rue’s life has been rough.  What she needs is a break.  One that’ll distract her from the fact that she’s drowning in responsibility.  It comes in the form of a dark and dangerous biker who has a habit of putting his life on the line.  He gives her the world, and she holds on with both hands, knowing that he only wants to be friends.  Or does he?

Flight

Thinking she knows what’s best, she pushes him too far, causing his control to take flight, and Cleo to disappear before the dust settles.  One night of passion turns into a year of heartbreak as Rue tries to find the ability to move on from Cleo.  He was pretty clear with his wishes, and they didn’t include her.

Cleo’s not through with Rue, though.  Not even a little bit.  She’ll be his.  All it’ll take is a little bit of…persuasion.

Excerpt:

“Cleo…I don’t have any kids. That kid is Cody’s baby,” she yelled back.

“Cody’s baby?” I asked, confused.

Hadn’t I heard from Silas that Cody was gay?

She raised her eyebrows up. “Yeah, they went to Egypt just a few months ago and adopted her.”

That stopped me in my tracks.

Then I felt immensely stupid. “Fuck, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have come over this morning. I had a bad night, and I just jumped to conclusions. I just wanted to see you.”

She blinked, surprised at my apology.

“It’s okay,” she said softly. “But maybe you should go home. Come back some time when you’re thinking clearly.”

“I…I don’t want to go home,” I admitted.

“Why?” She asked. “What happened?”

I sat down on the edge of her couch and let my head fall into my hands. “I had two patients die last night. Two separate accidents, but no less severe than the other. One was a two year old who’d touched a live wire that had fallen in her backyard. The other was a young girl who suffered third degree burns in a motor vehicle accident.”

Both cases were still just as fresh in my brain as they were four and a half hours ago when they’d happened one after the other.

“I’m sorry to hear that, Cleo,” she said softly. “But, that still doesn’t help me answer why you’re here at all. You left me, remember? Why now? Why, when I just got my life back in order? Do you know how long it’s been since I cried through the night? Two goddamn weeks. Then one freaking look at you, and it’s all right there again. I can feel everything. It’s tearing me apart,” she whispered with tears filling her voice.

Her head fell, hiding her face so I didn’t see the tears.

I swallowed thickly.

“I didn’t want to die and leave you alone,” I rasped.

She finally looked up, giving me her tear stained blue eyes.

“I would’ve followed you anywhere. Done anything for you. All you had to do was tell me what to do. I would’ve waited. I would’ve been able to live my life knowing you’d be coming back to me…if you were able,” she cried.

I closed my eyes. The pain and terror that had grown for the past year all compounded to that final moment. The exact instant in time that I knew I had to get out.

“I almost died over there,” I grated. “The only thing that kept me alive was knowing you were here for me to come back to you. Whether you thought that you were mine or not, I was always yours. And I always will be.”

Her quiet crying turned to a giant sob, and I gathered her into my arms, burying my face into her neck.

“What will it take for you to give me a chance?” I asked.

My heart froze in my chest, and then started to pound double time.

“I’ll give you anything. Everything. You want me to quit, I’ll do it. You want me to leave the MC, I’ll do it. It’ll hurt, but I’ll do it. Just give me a chance. You don’t have to decide anything right now. But just let me spend some time with you. I’ll prove to you I’ve changed. I won’t freak out, I promise,” I pleaded.

She listened to my explanation, and I could tell it wasn’t enough by the dead in her eyes.

“I can’t. I just can’t,” she said and stepped away. “You can hang with me tonight, but after that, I want you to leave me alone.”

“But you’ll give me tonight?” I asked.

She nodded. “I’ll give you tonight.”

My Review: 5/5 Stars

I loved this book! The characters were real and their emotions were raw and real.
Cleo doesn’t know what to do with a relationship. He doesn’t want Rue to be another statistic if they really made a go at it.

All Rue wanted was to be Cleo’s girl, but that quickly got blown to dust when she opened herself up to him and he walks away.

Now a year later Cleo is back and he wants what’s his.

This was an awesome read. I could not put it down until I was done with it. The storyline was amazing. I was actually shocked at who the bad guy was. Even though Cleo left, it felt to me that he and Rue picked up right were they left off and that’s not a bad thing in my book. Because they flowed together and he was a PJ and in a MC come one now!

Through out all the bad things that were happening to Rue, Cleo stuck by her side.

I seriously need to get the first 4 books.
